- I am originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia but have also lived in Toronto and England
- This is my 6th year teaching, and all six years have been at Ecole McTavish!
- I currently teach Science 9, Computer Science 9, Health 9 but have also taught math and science course to all 3 grades at Ecole McTavish
- I have a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Environmental Science, and a Bachelor of Education degree, both from Acadia University
- Before I was a classroom teacher, I was an outdoor environmental educator teaching Ecology and Environmental Stewardship to students in grades 4-8
- I have a cute little Boston Terrier named Lily who is 3 years old
- When I'm not in my classroom you can find me walking my dog, downhill skiing, hiking, camping or enjoying a Chai Latte at Starbucks!
- I am passionate about inspiring students to make a positive difference in their community and the world. You can find me helping out with social justice or green initiatives with the school such as the annual trip to WE DAY in Calgary, or the EcoYolo project helping replant trees lost in the Fort McMurray fire. I have also assisted with Cross Country running, Track and Field and the local Robotics tournament in past years.
- What I love about teaching: students' great sense of humour, watching an 'ah-ha' moment as I help a students grasp a tough concept, and helping kids get inspired about social change.
